The occasional exerciser

It’s September and for some reason all that enthusiasm that you had built up for several months leading up to the summer has disappeared.  Not everyone is affected by this change of season, but there seem to be quite a few people that just drive right by the gym instead of stopping in to workout as we head into fall. These are the same people that post pics of their healthy meals, “check-in” at the gym, and quote other people’s positive messages while they are in the midst of a steady workout routine over the summer.  Now all of the sudden it’s as if they found a new hobby or just seem to forget that it takes a lifetime of consistency to keep their sorry asses in shape.  If anyone knows one of these occasional exercisers, they are all too familiar with hearing about how they need to get back into a routine or about how inconsistent they have been for the past few weeks due to their hectic schedule.  Ironically, they will always prolong getting back into a routine by saying, “next month I’m going to have less going on and will be more motivated to exercise.”  Whatever, I interpret that to read, “I’m a sloth and just don’t feel like exercising.”  Let’s face it, working out is like a job.  You don’t like it all the time, maybe not even most of the time, but you know you have to do it or else your fucked.  Unless of course you are on government assistance in which case you don’t know what it’s like to get up everyday and do something you really don’t feel like doing just for a paycheck.  Anyways, these part-timers will be the first to talk about the latest fitness craze and how the P90X-version 2.0 is so much better than the original and is exactly what they need to get back into shape.  Fact, if you stop working out for whatever reason, the longer you take to drag your ass back in the gym, the more likely you will become a fat piece of shit.  So don’t be an occasional exerciser, and if you need motivation I’ll be more than happy to take your money and make sure you feel bad about missing a workout.
